We were very fortunate in that we were given a private tour of this museum so I really want to give it a good review but I can’t. The problem is that Freud moved to London to avoid Nazi persecution (he and his family were Jewish) and he took all of his belongings with him – and his belongings stayed... More

Don't expect to seethe couch. The museum in Freuds Vienna home & office has interesting things.It is small and you get a feel of old Vienna when Freud started. There was an art exhibition at the museum also.

The atmosphere is the best part: if you understand and appreciate Freud, it will feel surreal standing in his old apartment. However, if you don't know much about him, the feeling of standing in the footsteps of a giant will probably not reach you. I would recommend mainly for fans of Freud

This museum I recommend to a persons who are really interest at this. The price is bigger and I expected more, but it was good for me with audio guide. It is small museum, so be ready to wait in front.

The "Museum" is very disappointing : It is where Freud established his medical practice, so the place is very small and gets crowded quickly ! Really disappointed by this visit, it doesn't worth to go into it while you are in Vienna as there are so many other beautiful places to visit in the city. The place has a lot... More

The museum can't host too many people, it gets really crowded. I suggest get there on time, in the morning. Inside you'll be given an audioguide with many information of the historical facts of Freud's life and the building. I don't think it's worth it the price of the ticket (9euro).

The cool thing about the museum is that it is located in the former apartment of Dr Freud, with some actual pieces of furniture (of which a couch of course). Yet, not being passionate about psychology and s. freud (and not at all knowledgeable on the topic), i would have appreciated more "basic" background material (e.g. S. Freud detailed bio,... More

Not very engaging lots of audio and pictures but not very engaging lots of potential, but was worthy of seeing. Takes about 45-60mins and costs 7-9 Euros.

If you have any interest at all in psychoanalysis this museum is worth visiting. Rooms laid out the way they were in his life before he had to flee to London. Good audio descriptions of history and good book shop. Post cards and newspaper cuttings reveal more of the man. Fascinating!
